Why do most weight loss programs fail?

When it comes to weight loss, it’s no secret that most diets just don’t work. In fact, research has shown that more than 95% of all dieters will regain the weight they lose within one to five years. So, what’s the reason for this shocking statistic?

The first reason is that most weight loss programs are based on a “calorie restriction” model. This means that they promote eating less food to lose weight. However, this approach is not sustainable in the long term. When you restrict your calories, your body goes into “ starvation mode ” and actually starts to hold onto fat instead of burning it.

Most diet fads are also too restrictive, which can make the plan difficult to stick to and may also lead to nutritional deficiencies. But most importantly, weight loss programs usually fail because they don’t address the underlying causes of weight gain, such as micronutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, stress, and lifestyle, leading to relapse after the weight loss program.

The elements of your personalized weight loss plan

Prescription Medications

If you have any medical conditions that contribute to weight gains, such as PCOS or thyroid dysfunction, you may need to take medications to manage these conditions. Your doctor can help you determine if medication is necessary and what type would be best for you.

Hormone Optimization

Hormonal imbalances can also contribute to weight gain. If you suspect that you may have a hormone imbalance, we can provide bioidentical hormone pellets to restore the optimal hormone balance and regulate weight gain.

Cellular Optimization

Cellular health is important for overall health and weight management. Making sure your cells are optimally functioning can help improve your metabolism and reduce weight gain.

Nutrition Support

It is important to eat a nutritious diet when trying to lose weight. However, sometimes, this is easier said than done. We can develop a healthy eating plan for your specific needs and goals.


Vitamin deficiencies can also contribute to weight gain. Ensuring you get enough vitamins and minerals through diet and supplementation can help support a healthy weight.
